Artists on Art Series: Emilie Stark-Menneg

May 16 @ 5:00 pm 6:00 pm

Join Farnsworth Chief Curator Jaime DeSimone with Harpswell-based painter Emilie Stark-Menneg (born 1984) as they discuss her artistic process and her new body of work created for the Momentum exhibition series. These paintings draw inspiration from the story of the unicorn, visible in The Unicorn Tapestries at the MET Cloisters and The Lady and the Unicorn at Musée de Cluny, and reimagine them in a contemporary response.

Referring to her works as “dreamscapes,” Stark-Menneg infuses the histories of maritime and figurative painting in Maine with metamorphosis and magic. She astutely observes the dramatic shifts in the environment, such as moon phases, tides, and seasonal blooms, and also ruminates on these themes in art history. Her distinctive style employs techniques such as poured paint, thick impastos, and translucent sprayed figures, to transport viewers into captivating and mysterious realms.
